Special Moment for Trent Frederic
There is never a bad time to score your first career goal in the National Hockey League, but you couldn’t have timed it any more perfectly than Boston Bruins forward Trent Frederic did on Sunday night.
The 23-year-old has skated in 16 games for the B’s in 2020-21 but only had one point prior to Sunday, and had yet to record a goal in 33 career games in the NHL. However, all that changed yesterday and it was beautiful.
Skating in his first outdoors game would have been a pretty special moment for Frederic anyway, but he managed to pull something off that ensured this weekend at the beautiful Lake Tahoe will be a time he will never ever forget.
With the Boston Bruins leading 4-2 in the second period, it appeared to be pretty much game over and it almost was at 16:47 when Frederic got the puck, spun and then unleashed an absolute bomb of a shot past Philadelphia Flyers goalie Carter Hart to put the B’s firmly in the driving seat if they were not already.
It was one hell of way to record your first career goal in the National Hockey League, and it was even better considering that it came in a game the Boston Bruins absolutely dominated against an absolutely stunning and breathtaking backdrop. Sunday is a day that will be spoken about in the Frederic household for quite some time, that’s for sure.
